To find evidence for the H → bb decay in the VH production channel, it is necessary to use detailed information on the properties of the decay products.
A recent analysis by CMS aimed to identify events in which a W-boson pair is produced purely via the electroweak interaction.
One of the most sensitive measurement channels involves Higgs boson decays via two Z bosons to four leptons.
The Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab has begun its three-year-long campaign to measure the magnetic moment of the muon with unprecedented precision.
“I think we have it, no?” was the question posed in the CERN auditorium on 4 July 2012 by Rolf Heuer, CERN’s Director-General at the time.
The top-Higgs coupling is crucial for the production of Higgs bosons at the LHC.
The first analysis concerns the polarisation of W bosons produced in the decays of top-quark–antiquark pairs.
Observing the Higgs via its decays into pairs of fermions further tests the predictions of the Standard Model.
A precise measurement of the mass of the W boson, which was discovered at CERN in 1983, is vital because it is closely related to the masses of the top quark and the Higgs boson.
Heisenberg and his student Euler realised that photons may scatter off of each other through a quantum-loop process involving virtual electron and positron pairs.
